2020 Razer Blade Pro 17 Review: Do you Really Need a 300 Hz Laptop?
All 2020 options come standard with the 10th gen octa-core Core i7-10875H to succeed last year’s 9th gen hexa-core Core i7-9750H. Unlike most other gaming laptops, Razer does not offer the hexa-core Core i7-10750H. Core i9 isn’t available here as well, but that is not something we would recommend for thin-and-light gaming laptops based on what we’ve seen on the MSI GS66.
RAM has been upgraded from DDR4-2667 to DDR4-2933. Two accessible SODIMM slots allow for up to 64 GB.
Nvidia Optimus is not included, but users can manually switch between the integrated and discrete GPUs via the Razer Synapse software. A reboot will be required each time. Manual graphics switching usually implies G-Sync support, but that is not available here.
Annoyingly, Razer Synapse will always be stuck on its login screen if booting up the system with wireless disabled. You’ll have to re-enable wireless and then completely restart Synapse to get past the login screen.
